Wildflowers in Death Valley yet?

Postby SteveB » Mon Mar 09, 2009 1:56 pm

Anyone have any kind of outlook on the spring wildflower bloom in DV this year? Hoping I can get down there for some photos this year!

Thanks!
SteveB

I'm baaack! ;) Death Valley was, well Death Valley! Furnace Creek was the busiest this nuby (only 3 visits) has seen it, but heading out to Titus Canyon or the Dunes at StovePipe was still sublime. As is the morning light on the Panamints. :cool: Our friend says that the flowers are not expected to be too flashy this year, but the peak will likely be in a week or so.

Temperatures were very mellow, but it's going to get hotter, doncha' know! :littledevil:
